Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney and Stephen Amell are in talks to join Cindy Chupack’s directorial debut “Whatever Makes You Happy.”
Radiant Films International is selling international rights to the comedy at AFM. Elijah Kelley is also in talks to star.
Mandalay Pictures developed the project and Cathy Schulman — who won a best picture Oscar for “Crash” — will produce. Prescience Film Finance, which backed “The King’s Speech,” will be involved as a financier.
David Frankel will executive produce along with Matt Rhodes and Jason Michael Berman.
“Whatever Makes You Happy” is based on the novel of the same name by William Sutcliffe and an earlier draft by Mark Andrus. Shooting is expected to start in New York City in June.
The story centers on a trio of suburban mothers who have been friends since their sons were in grade school together. Two decades later, the mothers — feeling marginalized and forgotten — decide impulsively to pay their sons an unannounced visit in New York City.
“This film is one of those rare comedies that will make audiences laugh and cry at the same time, due to its keen observations about the experiences of mothers and sons,” said Schulman.
Mom stars Allison Janney and Anna Faris are set to host 2015’s People’s Choice Awards, an annual event that recognizes talent in the worlds of television, film, and music.
Mom, a CBS comedy co-created by Chuck Lorre, debuted in 2013 and showcased Janney and Faris’ comedic talents—and proved they have great on-screen chemistry, making the two a solid choice for awards show hosts.
